Live Review: Girls Names – Hangar (June 6th)

In the late 70's and early 80's Belfast found it's sound. At a time of great struggle and difficultly, residents of the besieged Northern Irish capital took solace in a new form of music spilling-over from across the Irish Sea. And whilst the troubles may have dissipated, the resonating edgy  tones of punk remained an indicative cornerstone of the … Continue reading Live Review: Girls Names – Hangar (June 6th)

Jameson St Patrick’s Live – Vicar Street

Whilst the world was busy painting their famous landmarks green, Vicar Street (and more so Jameson) were going one shade deeper with a star-studded, whiskey fuelled Paddy's Day (well Paddy's Eve) celebration. Kicking off the party was a band who are anything but strangers to the atmospheric Dublin 8 venue. With the echoes of We Cut Corners' … Continue reading Jameson St Patrick’s Live – Vicar Street

le-galaxie-big-top

Indiependence really has to be commended for the addition of the Bier Halle stage to this year’s festival. Situated within a huge barn, it is more of a music venue than stage with its own bar stocked with the finest local craft beers, lounge area with comfortable seating and even ping-pong tables. But it is … Continue reading Indiependence Festival Review 2013 – Day 2

Analogue Wave

Let me introduce you to Analogue Wave,  a band (or electro super-duo in waiting) who have all but taken over my musical playlists ever since their compact disc bombardment of my letterbox commenced a couple of months ago.

2012

This is just a quick post to thank each and every one of my readers for making 2012 a special year for me and my blog. Seeing as I started out back in October 2011, last year was my first full calendar year and with almost 34,000 views and 1375 followers it's fair to say … Continue reading Thank You For A Great 2012

Delorentos Live @ INEC Killarney

delorentos

After what’s been the undoubted best year of their career, there’s a strange irony in Delorentos finishing 2012 in the slightly chaotic circumstances of the INEC. With last minute schedule changes seeing the gig move from the intimate confines of the Acoustic Club to the Ballroom next door, everyone involved has to reassess their approach … Continue reading Delorentos Live @ INEC Killarney
